Program Description:

The core focus of the program is on the social, political, and economic issues associated with sustainable development. Using a predominantly social science approach, you will be introduced to a range of Danish and European stakeholders shaping the sustainability agenda.

The Sustainability in Europe program will allow you to:


  • Use Copenhagen as a classroom by visiting some of the world’s most progressive sustainability initiatives. Past visits include the European Environment Agency, Risø National Laboratory for Renewable Energy, and the NGO Energy Crossroads
  • Spend your week-long study tour at a leading European destination in one of the key themes of sustainable development, such as grassroots innovation, environmental policy, or climate mitigation and adaptation
  • Combine your classroom experiences with field studies and study tour visits by creating your own strategy plan for a sustainable future
  • Get involved with sustainability outside of the classroom: live in the Green House, attend DIS-hosted Climate Seminars, volunteer for various sustainability NGOs, bike to school, or be a part of the Sustainability Task Force

The program is for you if you are interested in environmental studies, environmental science, public policy, or general environmental affairs.
